Fondant panels

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi

I have to make a tardis cake and was wondering wether to use panels or just ice as normal and then do doors. I think panels you can get right detailing on then let them dry. My worry is how to get them off the flat surface and onto the cake safely! Someone recommended a cookie sheet with cornflour for drying the panels on. Has anyone got a gadget that helps lift the panels onto the cake as fondant quite brittle when dry? Should i just roll the panels thicker?

 

cheers

I have no idea why the image links are always so long. I hope this helps!
